Uruguay is a country fo South America between Argentina and Brasil. Nearly the entire Uruguayan population is of European origin, mainly from Spanish and Italian descent. Therefore the overwhelming majority of Uruguayans are light skinned with light hair and blue eyes. Uruguayans are also very warm, kind, friendly, and extremely hospitable. Uruguayan culture has been heavily influenced by the Western Europeans that immigrated here. It is also very similar to that of Argentina. Both countries share: the tango, milonga, gaucho, mate, bandoneon, the same dialect, and the same food.
Montevideo is the capital and largest city in Uruguay. Its wide avenues and boulevards, open parks, old European styled buildings, beautiful beaches, great museums and theatres, sophisticated restaurants and clubs, and its warm, friendly people attract many tourists to this city.
Uruguay is probably most famous for its meat, soccer, and most of all its beaches. Known to have some of the best beaches in the world the Uruguayan Riviera, stretching from Montevideo to Rocha, houses notable beach resorts such as Cuchilla Alta, Solimar, and Piriapolis. The most famous and internationally known of these resorts is Punta del Este.
Known as Punta, this peninsula lays on the Rio de la Plata on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Therefore you can watch both the sun rise and set in Punta. Its white, sandy beaches; exclusive yacht and golf clubs; its sophisticated restaurants and shops; the decorated houses, mansions, and summer homes; the luxurious apartment buildings and 5 star hotels; and its vibrant nightlife all help to attract the hundreds of thousands of people that come here each year. Punta is grandest and most exclusive beach resort in all of South America and is considered one of the best in the world. For these reasons and more Punta is known as "the Pearl of the Atlantic".

Armando is in love with Giselle, the hot woman from Uruguay who works at the Hooters in Miami.
Uruguay, a small country with a big heart. very laid back. but intelligent at the same time. a country full of surprises, such as punta del este, a place which could give brazil's ipanema beach a run for it's money. nicknamed the hidden jewel of latin america, a penninsula for the elite in which very wealthy, famous and attractive people from around the world flock to in the summer. we are very proud of our country yet we wont put in your face like many others do. we share a cultural, historic and racial ties with argentina, but still have mere discussions about who's better at soccer and who started tango. there's a little mugging problem in montevideo, but otherwise uruguay is one of the safest latin american countries. we won the very first world cup of soccer in history. uruguay shares political views of democracy with the united states. we eat alot of meat, asados parillas etc, we also eat various italian foods and spanish food. we got gauchos.,. if you are looking to kick back and relax from the hustle and bustle of everyday life then uruguay will give you just that.
oh and last but not least- to all those punk ass bitches who pronounce uruguay by saying U R GAY, you will get MURKED! if you say that in front of us!, its pronounced ew-ru-guaiii!!!! oh lol we also drink alot of mate. we dont pronounce our y's.

From a Simpsons episode where Homer reads 'Uruguay' as 'You are gay'.

i'm federico, and im from uruguay
Country determined by God
himself to have a right to play in the world cup (despite finishing a measley fifth in their zone), and that no-one in the Oceanic zone should ever be allowed to play even if they never lose a match.
Uruguay is thusly famous for it's unique concept of sportsmanship and fairness, and also how well they handle being losers.
Joe Dingbat: Yay! Australia finished top of their zone without ever losing a single match! We're going to the world cup!
Rodney Sensible: Hold on there Joe, Australia will be the only country top of a zone to actually have to play a play-off to secure thier place. Uruguay finished fifth in their zone so we'd have to play them, and God said they deserve to go to the world cup and it's unfair for them, so I guess you're not allowed to compete.
Joe Dingbat: Oh, of course. How selfish of me.
